WHY CHOOSE ME?

Because I've been there myself and have at some time in my life, lived with the below.  So, I ask, do any of the following resonate with you at this time in your life?

  • dislike / hate of self, non self-acceptance

  • feeling helpless, powerless

  • too many outside events knocking you down

  • in a slump, stagnating

  • not being true to yourself, pleasing others

  • just existing day by day, floundering ?

 

If so, it’s time to take back control, realise your true potential and be the best version of yourself!

Hi Everyone,

Thank you for looking at my profile.

 

My journey as a Professional Voice Practitioner and Complementary Therapist came about after a devastating rejection from the Postgraduate Performer’s Course at the Birmingham Conservatoire in 2014. Already a trained opera singer, I can never remember a time when I didn’t have stage fright and needless to say the audition was nerve-wracking anyway, but the cutthroat attitude and superficial friendliness of the audition panel did nothing for my self-esteem.  Perhaps performing was not for me and it was time to change my career path.

 

By the time I started the Master’s Professional Voice Practitioner (www.voiceworx.co) I was already suffering anxiety, fuelled by limiting beliefs at going to University as a mature student and having huge guilt at leaving my 14 and 9 year old daughters without a mum for 14 hours a day. There was no one at University on hand trained in mental ill-health to help me through the gruelling, weekly assessments.  Therefore, I knew I needed to be the person I never had, which meant sorting myself out first before training as a therapist.

 

Shortly after the MA-PVP Graduation, I trained as a Neuro-Linguistic Practitioner and Time-Line Therapist swapping freebie sessions with an Advanced NLPer’s knowledge of hypnotherapy for my vocal coaching. The results for both of us were amazing and in November 2017 I was able to get back into performing and she recovered her voice. Since then I’ve discovered Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) and I can honestly say ‘Tapping’ has been an absolute lifesaver for both my clients and myself and combined with NLP creates a great toolkit. Once taught, you will have empowering tools to self-maintain and build your resilience.   

I am now qualified as a Complementary Therapist and Voice Practitioner combining Energy Psychology Techniques (Tapping) with Neuro-Linguistics and Voice Coaching.  I am a member of the Concert Artistes’ Association (CAA), Equity, British Voice Association (BVA), Association for Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT Intl) and Association for Neuro-Linguistic Programming (ANLP).  I am constantly researching and updating my practice methods and therapies to give you that extra support.

I follow both the EFT Intl Code of Conduct and Ethics and ANLP Standards of Conduct along with complying with principles of General Data Protection Regulations (UK).  I have an Enhanced DBS and am insured with Protectivity.
